The West Paris Library will have an exhibit beginning August 16th of paintings by David Thomas Mulhearn. David with Debra, his nature photography wife, have lived in Australia, New Zealand and the U.K. and explored much of Europe and South and North America. They currently spend winters at their home in Mesa, Arizona and summer on top of Stearns Hill, West Paris, Maine.

David has a long history with the natural environment. He grew up on an island where he explored the sea shore and coastal marshes. He and wife Debra purchased forest acreage in Naples, Maine where they developed and managed a private wildlife sanctuary. They were based there for nearly 30 years.

As full time RVers in a motor home they traveled across America experiencing the beauty of its many national and state parks. To further their experiences they explored different and exciting cultures by living over seas.

David has a unique ability to perceive the beauty of his surroundings through art. He won an award and scholarship to the Boston Museum School of fine Art, studied art as a second major at the University of Massachusetts and did graduate work at the Mass College of Art under Jeremy Foss. His paintings have been exhibited in Maine galleries, used for the Boston Zoological Society, a show at the National Bank and an on loan exhibit at a Maine public school.
